Aboriginal Traineeship Program

 

Overview

The Aboriginal Traineeship Program (ATP) is an employment-based training initiative that provides young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth, 25 years of age and under, with an opportunity to develop skills and competencies through a Government traineeship in Western Australia (WA).

Following attendance at an information session, trainees are assessed by the Registered Training Organisation on the qualification level to be undertaken – either a Certificate II, III or IV in Government. A training plan for each trainee is them developed prior to commencement of the traineeship.

As part of ATP trainees will be employed in a WA State Government agency for a period of 12 months to complete the traineeship. This will enable the trainee to develop skills in public administration and build a sustainable career pathway. Trainee receive payment whilst undertaking the training.

There are no guarantees of ongoing employment at the end of the traineeship, however the Aboriginal employment support officers from the Public Sector Commission will work with trainees to identify ongoing employment opportunities.

ATP is an initiative of the Aboriginal Employment Strategy 2011-2015.
